With the bright colours from our Party of Five mini-skeins, a gorgeous array of texture, and a bias-knit construction, this shawl will have you giddy as a kid in a candy store, proclaiming “just one more row.”

The shawl begins at the bottom corner with just 3 stitches, increasing at each end to create a large triangle. Pops of color are worked with various techniques along the bias to the far end of the wrap, where decreases on each end create a final MC triangle to complete the rectangular wrap. This wrap is designed to maximize the use of the Party of Five gradients. If your gauge varies from the pattern, you may require more yardage.
The Chocolate Bar Lace stitch is both written and charted (see page 3) for your preference.
